ATTENTION FROM TEACHERS
Attention from teachers extends well beyond the classroom. Faculty members hold regular office
hours, are easily accessible by phone, voice mail, and e-mail, and regularly attend campus events.
HANDS ON LEARNING
Hands on learning intensifies the academic experience for students. One example: Drew science
students conduct research alongside some of the world's most accomplished scientists. Through
the Charles A. Dana Research Institute for Scientists Emeriti (RISE), renowned scientists, newly
retired from industry, direct undergraduate research.
LOCATION @ DREW
New York City, an hour by bus or train from Drew's safe college campus, is a major gateway to
the wider world. Drew's location near the New York metropolitan area gives students easy
access to one of the largest centers of business, the arts, and entertainment.
Each of Drew's academic
programs takes advantage of this proximity to corporate, media, and
cultural centers. Four of Drew's off-campus study programs--on theatre, Wall Street, the United
Nations, and contemporary art--are centered in Manhattan.
Wall Street is bullish
on Drew. The Wall Street Semester, Drew's newest off-campus program,
focuses on the daily operations of New York's financial district as well as its impact on the
Career-related internships round out the experiential learning process for most Drew students.
